Just a few weeks after announcing his newest “Slimeageddon” EP, Snails has announced another massive milestone in his prolific career: the launch of his very own comic book series, The Shell, and its debut issue The Sluggernaut. Through its vivid imagery and captivating story lines, The Sluggernaut provides a glimpse into the creative universe that fuels the Vomitstep producer’s music and live event concepts. Snails teamed up with French artist Dr. Fanx and co-writer Maria Filipone to bring the Vomitsquad‘s colorful world – including King Slugz, King Frogz, Sluggtopia and The Shell – to life in Marvel-like style.
On the surface, The Sluggernaut‘s plot may seem like it’s all about King Slugz‘s intergalactic, worm-fighting battles, but Snails has a much deeper meaning behind the series. At its core, The Sluggernaut is the story of a flawed hero desperate to save his people, and its theme centered on perseverance in the face of tremendous obstacles. Through the engage plot lines and immersive art, Snails creatively conveys his believe that one has an obligation to fulfill one’s own destiny. You can grab your own copy of the comic book here!
